Spring Details

“The earth laughs in flowers.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

As spring begins to emerge in every corner of the city, flowers have started to bloom. When we walk down the street, I point around and say “Look at all the allergies on the trees.”

We are testing out a new camera lens that lets us get up close and personal with the smallest of flowers. Everyone ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ over the big yellow daffodils while walking right over the tiny little flowers putting on a spectacular show.

This new lens is a bit difficult and I think it will take a while to get used to. I’m having fun and look forward to practicing on all of the flowers that are still waiting to bloom.
